ΟPAP and AEK FC together for 2018-19 season
Renewal of sponsorship cooperation – PAME STOIXIMA to be featured on the team’s official jersey for fourth consecutive year
OPAP and AEK FC presented the renewal of their sponsorship cooperation for 2018-2019 season, on Wednesday, September 12 2018. PAME STOIXIMA is the team’s Grand Sponsor and the new logo of the game will be featured on the team’s official jersey for fourth consecutive year.
The sponsorship cooperation between OPAP, the leading gaming company in Greece, and AEK FC continues dynamically. After winning last year’s Super League championship, AEK’s return to Champions League after twelve years, marks this year’s season. With the support of OPAP, the Super League champion begins its efforts for a successful course in Greece and Europe with optimism.
Speaking at the presentation, which took place in OPAP’s headquarters, OPAP CEO, Damian Cope, said: “Our partnership with the historic club of AEK has been marked by major sporting achievements over the years. This year is even more special, as AEK is the reigning Super League champion and Greece’s only representative in group stages of the UEFA Champions League, the European leading football club tournament. Undoubtedly, this is a historic period for the club and we are delighted that it coincides with OPAP’s 60th anniversary. For all of us at OPAP, this is an important milestone; we celebrate our legacy and deep roots in Greek society, and also set sight on our plans and initiatives to shape our company’s future and further build on our commitment to consistently support in practice our communities, the economy and sport. In terms of Greek sport, OPAP significantly contributes to its development”.
AEK FC CEO and First Vice President, Minas Lissandrou, stressed: “OPAP is a company that is connected with the Greek society and significantly supports sport at all levels. We would like to warmly thank OPAP for standing on our side, offering us the strength to achieve our goals. Our return to the top and our successful course in Europe show that AEK has returned to where it belongs. This is proven, also, by our return to Champions League. We could not make all these happen, without our Grand Sponsor, OPAP. AEK is not just a team and OPAP is not just a company. I hope that, next year, we will make one further step”.
AEK FC Head Coach, Marinos Ouzounidis, has stressed: “It is a great pleasure for us to have such a good cooperation that supports our efforts for success in Greece and Europe. We would like to thank OPAP for its support and we hope that the future will bring more successes”.
AEK FC player, Andre Simoes noted: “We would like to thank OPAP that supports us and stands on our side in our efforts in the Greek championship and Champions League. We hope that our cooperation will continue in the future”.
